Orange-Onion Burst Roasted Chicken Recipe
1/4 cup seasoned breadcrumbs, dry
2 tablespoons chopped green onion (scallions)
1 tablespoon chopped red onion
1 tablespoon fresh, minced chives
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons orange juice
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon fresh, minced rosemary
1/2 teaspoon fresh, minced parsley
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 cleaned roasting chicken, about 4 1/2 lbs
Salt and pepper
1/2 medium orange, quartered
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Pour the breadcrumbs, green onion, red onions, chives, oil, orange juice, soy sauce, rosemary, parsley and cumin into a high-powered blender or food processor. Blend until mixture is smooth. Set aside.
Clean, wash and dry your chicken. Place the chicken on a roasting rack in a large roasting pan. Lightly salt and pepper the chicken, inside and out. Baste entire chicken, inside and out, generously with the onion mixture.
Pour half of the remaining onion mixture into the chicken cavity. Add the well-washed, quartered orange half to the chicken cavity.
Place chicken in oven and roast for 1 hour and 20 minutes. Baste the chicken once with the remaining onion mixture after 40 minutes of cooking. The chicken is done when juices run clear and a meat thermometer reads 180 degrees. Remove chicken from oven, and let cool for 10 minutes. Carve and serve.

Grilled Citrus Chicken Under a Brick
1 cup fresh orange juice
1/3 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh oregano
3 teaspoons salt, divided
2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh rosemary
1 garlic clove, chopped
1 whole chicken (about 3 3/4 pounds), neck and giblets removed, butterflied
1 teaspoon Hungarian sweet paprika
1 teaspoon black pepper
Nonstick vegetable oil spray
1 1/2 oranges
2 foil-wrapped bricks or 1 cast-iron skillet
Whisk juices, olive oil, oregano, 1 teaspoon salt, rosemary, and garlic in glass baking dish. Add chicken to marinade. Turn to coat; chill 2 hours, turning occasionally. DO AHEAD: Can be made 1 day ahead. Keep chilled.
Mix remaining 2 teaspoons salt, paprika, and pepper in small bowl.
Spray grill rack with nonstick spray. Prepare barbecue (medium heat). Slice 1/2 orange into 1/4- to 1/8-inch-thick slices. Remove chicken from marinade; pat dry. Loosen skin from chicken breast and slide 1 to 2 orange slices between skin and breast. Loosen skin from thighs and slide 1 to 2 orange slices between skin and thighs. Rub paprika mixture over both sides of chicken. Place chicken, skin side down, on grill. Place foil-wrapped bricks or cast-iron skillet atop chicken (if using bricks, position 1 brick over top half of chicken and 1 brick over bottom half). Cover and grill until skin is crispy and brown, about 15 minutes. Remove bricks or skillet. Using tongs or 2 large spatulas, turn chicken. Replace bricks or skillet and cook, covered, until chicken is cooked through, about 20 minutes longer. Let chicken rest 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, place whole orange on grill and cook until slightly charred, turning often, about 1 minute. Cut into wedges and serve alongside for squeezing over chicken.
